Federal Election Commission

Tomorrow you are going to see articles on how much each of the presidential candidates have raised (as well as your US Senate (if you have one this time around) and House of Representative candidates.  To find out, go to the FEC site.  For example here is my congressman (Jim Moran (D-VA) through December as well as the two primary contenders for our open US senate seat (George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D).  You can also go back two election cycles and compare the money raised and spent.  Here is a great article that makes sense of the relative spending levels in that Obama, for example, says that he has raised $45 million, but that includes money to the Dem Party (for which one can give $25,000), but it does not include super PAC money.
